    Yeah, I might try the Emporium - at the moment I'm using a cheese grater to get it into small bits as quickly as possible, being that I'm doing it every night into a plastic cup and downing it with water, a little grated ginger and a fish oil capsule. Lest I can do to re-pay my body for years of alcohol and nicotine abuse.

    I Have one, bought it from truevalue, 3 or 400baht, used it 2 times in 5 years, quicker and easier if your only doing a few cloves to use a knife as cleaning the poxy things is a pain.

    Actually forget it, I've had a better offer.

    A Canadian with the same name as me has offered to give me a garlic plane that turns it into a paste (and ginger and makes really fluffy fresh nutmeg, and parmesan like angel's pubes).

    Step 1: Put garlic clove on chopping board and whack with flat side of large cook's knife
    Step 2: Remove skin, which will now be easy because it is split after being whacked
    Step 3: Sprinkle salt over newly skinned garlic clove
    Step 4: Put blunt side of widest part of knife blade against inside first knuckles your non-dominant hand, the blade should now extend across your palm and end close to your wrist
    Step 5: Whilst holding knife handle (firmly) with your dominant hand use wrist/heel of non-dominant hand to grind/mash garlic into a puree. Think of using a crushing-pushing-circular movement with the non-dominant hand, a bit like kneading bread. The salt will absorb any garlic juice and help to make a smoother puree
    Step 6: Scoop up resulting garlic puree and make revolting drink.


    Step 7 (optional): Head to emergency room to have wrist stitched up if you slipped up somewhere.

    Oh dear. Do you actually believe that dietary homeopathy will have an effect beyond your wishful thinking?

    Better you rub your scrotum with pomegranate juice and wait for a passing virgin.

    It is called a Garlic Press, and they do work,, but you will never get layed again by anything except a Thai or a Wop eating garlic like that.
    I worked in a mine when I was young with a Bohunk that ate garlic by the hand full, and you could smell that stinking bastard for a mile down the drift.

    Sorry Scamp, but he won't need to.

    Homeopathic medicine is utterly ludicrous. Take your 'health' drink and dilute it with all the water in the Pacific Ocean and a homeopath will insist it has become more effective.

    So raw garlic has no health benefits?

    It does actually make me feel good and it makes me like the smell of my burps, I only take it at night unless Okimo is coming over.

    I didn't say that, I said that homeopathic "medicine" has no benefits.

    If you want to follow homeopathic rubbish you way as well use the astrological projections in your local paper from Mystic Meg; they are equally as valid.

    I have a vague idea of what you mean by homeopathic and if it's anything to do with new age hippies which I think it is, then it's as invalid as star signs and all the rest of that shit.

    I eat a clove of raw garlic a night and occasionally some ginger - I like the feeling 30 minutes afterwards same as I like the natural high from a good workout.

    So you didn't say that raw garlic has no health benefits and again you've mentioned homeopathic medicine which I will have to Google.

    I eat raw or lightly boiled veggies and cook my own food whenever I can and I avoid McDonalds, KFC and Coca Cola at all costs - is that also homeopathic?

    He'll want you to prove that statement.
